Its great to change your reeds when your altissimo doesn't speak right because the reed is to soft.Act pissed and reach down with my right hand like the G# key stuck. Unfortunately, it really happens all too frequently. Never trust a G# key!
Hey, what the hell does changing reeds have to do with trying to cover up mistakes? You change a reed when you have to whether everybody can see you do it or not. I like to do it, actually, thinking the people get sort of a 'behind the scenes' glimpse of what it takes to keep pumping music out of this brass albatross we hang around our necks.
